      We at the Physio Therapy Centre hope to be getting the vaccine jabs next week- we are on the list! It makes me feel that we are moving closer to a better place after what has been a tricky time for all.  This will be Jab 1.   I have been reading about getting Jab 1 and about delays to then getting Jab 2. Data from testing, together with knowledge about other vaccines suggest that any delay for Jab 2 should not make it less effective. Whether it’s the Pfizer or the Oxford Jab 2 should follow Jab 1 within about 28 days. A single dose of the Pfizer is about 85-90% [...]

  • Phase II of the Covid 19 response and face2face treatment

    The main points are to maintain social distancing as we are best able and to always keep your hands as clean as possible.  We want you to be safe and feel safe when you are at the Centre so we will be doing our upmost to ensure this.

    If you are not sure whether it is best to have an online appt or if you would benefit more by being seen face to face then we can arrange a phone call to discuss this.  We have a “virtual first” approach.

    However if you think you would like to see one of our therapists then you will be asked to agree that you are not a diagnosed or suspected Covid 19 carrier and then we will agree together that you understand the risks and have agreed to a face2face meeting.  You will also need to consent to treatment. Please do not come to the Centre if you suspect at all that you may be a risk. Please confirm that:
